The one downside to our Derby & Dressage Show on Sunday was the date clash with our much-loved Border Counties one-day event at Glaslough in Monaghan. In 2010 ten of our members travelled to the event and had a wonderful experience. This year it was left to the Gaeltachts to (very successfully) fly the Donegal flag.
For anybody who is keen to get a one-day event under their 2011 belt, the only riding club one within tenuous single-day reach is Mosstown Riding Club’s event at Corbeagh House in Longford on Sunday 31 July. Damien, Nadine and Mary Finneran competed at this venue in 2008. Unfortunately it clashes with Tirconaill’s show on the same day. Entries for the Mosstown ODE close on Monday 25 July, so time is running out.
The only other chance to catch a riding club ODE is with our friends in Dalysgrove near Ballinasloe on Sunday 28 August.
